It was a real joy to photograph this 7 day old baby girl last week. She was an excellent poser and sleeper and as cute as a button.

Here are a few of my favourites from this session:

Two Adorable Very Fast Dogs! (Winnipeg Pet Photographers)

Leave a comment

I met these 2 cute dogs last night and was very impressed with how cute they were and how fast they could move.

I love the shot of the owners with their dogs in this first image. It’s a pose I often use with families and it worked so well with these 2 dogs. Please note their bandannas from Leo and Co Pet Shop!

 

 

Fun Family Session! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

This family of 6 was one of the funnest families that I’ve ever photographed.

This first picture is of their 2 dogs, Maggie and Brandi. Aren’t they adorable.

I love this one of the family with everyone smiling; including the dogs!

 

I told them to have some fun with it at the end of the session and I got this amazing image.

All in all, it was a fantastic session.
Thank you Tanner for buying your parents the gift certificate!

 

Free Pet Portraits and News of Summer 2018! (Winnipeg Photography Newsletters)

Finally it’s summer!

This is an exciting summer for John and me because we are  getting married on July 7th! Our wedding will be at Victoria Beach. We hope it will be on the beach and that we will have a beautiful summer day, but it will be a beautiful day one way or another. After the wedding, we are going to spend 10 days in Newfoundland, the only province that John and I haven’t been in.

In the meantime, we are spending a lot of time getting the cabin ready for July 7th. John is finishing the porch and the sun room and I’m painting furniture and planting flowers. In between all of that we are taking the dogs for long walks. They love playing in the water at the beach. It really is heaven on earth and we love it there.

John and I at Victoria Beach.

One of many amazing sunsets at the beach. 

My studio will be closed from July 4th until July 21st. Let me know asap if you are interested in a portrait session this summer so that  I can accommodate you before or after these dates.



Free Pet Portraits

Do you have a professional portrait of your dog? Have you ever thought about getting one? This is your chance!

I am partnering with a local pet shop named Leo and Co Pet Shop. Leo and Co is located on the corner of Gateway Rd and Sun Valley Drive and offers many interested pet products including a $10 pet bath and $10 nail trims on Thursday evenings (6 to 7 pm) and on Sundays (12 to 1 pm).

Stacey, the owner of Leo and Co. believes in offering our dogs the best in food, treats and everything else dog. For example, pictured here is marigold spray which will keep mosquitoes off of your dog, natural organic treats and handmade collars that you can’t buy anywhere else in Winnipeg.

As well you can find every kind of chew: chicken feet, pig’s ears and deer chews.

     

If you are interested in this offer all you need to do is stop in at Leo’s and fill in an entry form. It’s that simple. I am going to choose the lucky winners on June 18th.

Don’t delay. Stop by Leo’s this weekend!

Here are a couple of the adorable dogs that I’ve photographed.



Time

We hear a lot about how important it is to be in the moment and how quickly time passes. The video below is the probably the most powerful message about time that I have seen. I can’t post the video here, but here is the youtube link for it. Please watch it. I guarantee that you’ll be glad you did.
Once we realize how quickly time passes, it becomes even more important to make every day count and to do the things that we love in the time that we have. Taking that a step further, it becomes even more important to document this time in our lives. And what better way to do that than to have portraits of ourselves and our family to look back on. Not only for us but for generations to come. Digital images on your iphone aren’t going to be around in 100 years. Prints will be. Be sure to make prints. I can’t emphasize this enough. We are a generation that takes more pictures than ever before, but they will all be lost and there won’t be a visual record to share with future generations unless we make prints.


Dog Wisdom

John and I love our dogs and when I was looking for a picture for our bathroom I wanted a poster that reflected that. I made this up. I think it has a lot of truisms in it.
I can get one made up for you as well. Let me know if you are interested and I will give you a price.



Yours in Photography,

Beautiful Family! (Winnipeg Family Photographers)

This was session number 2 for this 3 month old  baby girl. She was sleepy and grumpy at session number one but look at her in these images from session number 2; which was only 2 weeks later!

It was worth having her come back. This family will now have images that will be treasured for years to come!

When you look at these good-looking parents, you can see why this little one is so cute!

Have a look at these highlights from our second session.

What a Cutie! (Winnipeg Baby Photographers)

The last time I saw this cutie she was a newborn and now she is 9 months old and as cute as can be. We managed to get a lot of smiles out of her last week.

Here are a couple of her adorable smiles:
